It happened just after 10 p.m. at South Cole Road and West Hummel Drive.

It's a horrific reminder to stay alert when driving. I know personally how fast an accident could happen. A year ago I was driving in downtown Portland when a biker came out of nowhere. I hit him, he went flying. Honestly, I thought I killed him. It was the scariest moment of my life. Luckily for both of us, he only suffered minor bumps and bruises because of the crash. Stay alert out there Boise.
